Tsunami Exercise Scheduled 3/22

The LANTEX17 exercise simulates a tsunami generated by a magnitude 8.8 earthquake located approximately 345 miles west southwest from Lisbon, Portugal and 510 miles west of the Straits of Gibraltar at 36.0ºN, 15.0ºW. Such a quake would send a tsunami towards North America. Image: NOAA
Are you and your local officials prepared for a potential destructive tsunami along the US east coast? An exercise scheduled for March 22 will help bring awareness to the threat, allowing local officials and residents to be ready when an actual threat arrives. (If any real tsunami threat occurs during the time period of the exercise, the exercise will be terminated.)
